Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service's (Bucks Fire) control room has handled an estimated 600,000 calls and currently receives an average of more than 400 a week. Fire Control deploys the service's 554 firefighters and 42 specialist fire and rescue vehicles to a variety of emergency incidents - mainly fires and road accidents - in response to 999 calls. Buckinghamshire deployed FirePass which provides a secure SSL based remote connection and only requires clients with a web browser and internet connectivity. The system automatically checks the integrity of the user device and authenticates the user before allowing access to end-to-end SSL encrypted data. After the user disconnects, FirePass cleans up any confidential information left on the client device.
